The Intrinsic Derivative and Centrifugal Forces in General Relativity:. II. Applications to Circular Orbits in Some Familiar Stationary Axisymmetric Spacetimes
The tools developed in a preceding article for interpreting spacetime geometry in terms of all possible space-plus-time splitting approaches are applied to circular orbits in some familiar stationary axisymmetric spacetimes. This helps give a more intuitive picture of their rotational features including spin precession effects, and puts related work of Abramowicz, de Felice, and others on circular orbits in black hole spacetimes into a more general context.
